Threading Wizard help
« on: June 09, 2014, 02:09:47 AM »
just realized my first post on this forum was in the wrong spot..Hoping this is a better spot..I tried to lock the first one

I am relatively new to the world of cnc but have been figuring it out by reading and such for awhile.  I can turn pretty accurately and wanted to start practicing threading.  I was having issues with the threading wizard giving me a feed rate error so I moved me Z axis velocity to 75 (which is its max).  I do not get the feed rate error anymore but when I go to run the program, it just jabs my tool into the middle of the stock.  I am pretty familiar with setting up tools and such so i dont think the error is there..I have attached my numbers and g-code to see if someone can help me figure out where my error is out

thanks

I think this is correct.  Many of the values are made on my best guess, my manufacturer kinda bailed on me

Ok first thing to do is go to Config menu then Ports and Pins then Spindle Setup and choose the Use Spindle Feedback in Sync mode.
See if that helps.

That did'nt help although I feel I am getting closer to the source of the issue.  When using simple thread wizard and going to run in, I tell the wizard I am using tool 4.  Once I start the program my dRO changes from the offset for tool 4, to something else.  I am not sure what offset it resorts to but it isnt the one I set up for my threading tool

Wondering if it could be your M6 End macro, make sure it doesnt have anything in it as that is meant for Mills.
